Bell Galaxy Tab Gets a $100 Discount at Best Buy

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Bell Galaxy Tab was and still is the first real Android tablet, which although didn’t come with an OS version that was compltely optimized for a tablet, it still manages to get the job done and is by far one of the best tablets on the market right now.

Bell Mobility and Best Buy have had this tablet for a while now,but if you didn’t get it already, you are in luck, because Best Buy is oferring the Bell Galaxy Tab for $100 less until January 27th. That puts it at $549, which isn’t a too bad deal considering it has very competitive specs and a 3G chip inside it.

If you want a good Android tablet, Bell Galaxy Tab should be a great choice, and it should be a great ebook reader as well, since it comes with a nice ebook reader app, and its 7″ size and light weight make it ideal for reading while holding it with one hand.

Another advantage given by its 7″ size is that it can be a lot more portable than a 10″ tablet. You can carry it with you almost anywhere you go in a back pocket, or in your car or a bag. You can even use it as a GPS navigation unit for you car. So the 7″ Bell Galaxy Tab definitely has some advantages over other 10″ tablets that can’t be ignored. Add together the $100 discount you’re getting until January 27th if you hurry up, and it’s a valuable purchase.

EnStream
created the Zoompass Mobile Wallet to provide Canadians with an
easy to use and convenient way to transact using digital currency,
payment cards and other credentials accessible through a mobile
device. The Zoompass Wallet application already provides Canadians
with a way to send, receive and request digital currency
domestically. As of today, Zoompass users can send money around the
world, using the Western Union Money Transfer service within the
application. “Enabling consumers to send a money transfer from a
mobile device, at any time, and from anywhere, is an exciting new
way for Canadians to remit funds back home,” said Brian Fox, Senior
Vice President and General Manager for Western Union in Canada.
“The Western Union Money Transfer service represents a fast,
convenient and reliable connection with family and friends.
Anything that we can do to make that connection stronger is an
example of the tremendous value the Western Union brand offers to
consumers.”

Once a Western Union Money Transfer
transaction has been done through Zoompass, the receiver of the
funds can pick them up at any Western Union location, in over 200
countries. Subscribers of Bell Mobility can also have funds from
Western Union being transfered directly to their Mobile Wallet
accounts. The Zoompass service is currently available on networks

5MP camera, and Wi-Fi, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. It comes
with a 2GB microSD card, but can hold up to 32GB for additional
memory. The Bell Mobility Palm Pre is a CDMA device that comes with
the beautiful WebOS and it features a 3.1″ (320×480) touch screen
display, slide out QWERTY keyboard, a 3MP camera, Wi-Fi,
bluetooth, and GPS. It also comes with 8GB of internal memory, and
has a 3.5 mm headset jack. If you’re interested in other Android
phones, you can get Samsung Vibrant, HTC Desire Z for $75 less
until December 31st, and you can also get LG Optimus for free – all
with a 3 year contract.
